Medical/Surgical II (Care of the Older Adult)

Course Description

Utilization of the nursing process within the framework of Orem's model of self-care in relation to the gerontological client and the client with chronic self-care deficits. Emphasis is on the study of the older adult who is experiencing the normal process of aging as well as the older adult experiencing a health deviation. Critical thinking and problem solving will be employed through group exercises and independent study with consideration for the Registered Nurse's scope of practice. This course and its clinical component (NURS 84L) must be taken concurrently. Failure of either requires both to be retaken.
